Environmental Product Declarations (EPD's) Drive Restrooms to the Lead in Green Design
Event Description

Construction is going green. As both sustainability and efficiency advance in the built environment, architects, specifiers, and buyers are increasingly concerned with products that are environmentally friendly and can achieve product performance and client welfare goals. Architects and designers are, in essence, visionaries. This course explores options that architects and designers have when choosing products that accurately support and fuel their passion possibilities while maintaining the health, safety, and welfare of clients needs. Definition for PCRs, LCAs, and EPDs are discussed and various case studies are examined.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Discuss how environmental product declarations (EPD's) allow for apples comparisons of building products in term of hygiene, welfare and health performance.
  2. Explain how product category rules (PCRs) establish clear, consistent evaluation methods for building products as a means to help ensure and validate the environmental performance of buildings.
  3. Describe how PCRs, LCAs, and EPDs can be used together to assess and optimize the hygiene, health, and sustainability characteristics of high-performance restroom designs
  4. Apply the information provided by environmental and efficiency standards when making product and welfare decisions.
